why have i never heard of the green bag lady until now? she's made and given away nearly 8,000 reusuable bags to people who promise to stop using paper & plastic. all bags are made from donated & repurposed fabric. she even turns her scrap fabric into dog beds for an animal shelter--these beds use literally all of her scrap so that nothing goes to waste. genius.
kudos to the green bag lady. she's also been kind enough to share her gift bag pattern for those of us not lucky enough to win. but i totally plan on winning, don't you?
